Manchester United legend Roy Keane is involved in a new controversy after The Sun apparently lifted the lid on the end of the affair at Aston Villa.
We always felt that there was more to come on this story as it all seemed to end far too harmoniously for Keano.
The Sun reckons that the former Manchester United captain went round to Tom Cleverley’s house to have it out with him after the sacking. They say:
Roy Keane tried to confront Cleverley at his home – blaming him for stories alleging he had a bust-up with Aston Villa Players. Keane did not manage to talk to Cleverley and eventually gave up
The problem with men of a certain temperament is that these sorts of stories tend to be generated even if there is no truth in the behind it.
But you have to ask whether Keano’s legendary temper got the better of him on this occasion as he abruptly left Aston Villa after a seemingly good relationship with the team and manager Paul Lambert.
It can’t all be Keane’s fault. But there comes a point when he has have an introspective look at where things are going wrong in terms of certain professional relationships. No person in humankind has ever been faultless in life. No one is perfect. The most important thing is to recognise this and be prepared to own up to your shortcomings.
Manchester United fans: could you ever imagine Keano returning to Manchester United in a coaching capacity?
